Barrow in Furness Flower Club

Meeting Address: 

St. Pauls Church, Hawcoat Lane, BARROW-IN-FURNESS, LA14 4HD

About us: 

 

Barrow-in-Furness is situated on the coastal edge of the Furness Peninsula, in the South of Cumbria. Surrounded on three sides by water: Morecambe Bay, the Irish Sea and the Dudden Estuary, and with the Lakeland Hills forming the backdrop to the eastside.

Over the years many flower arrangers have demonstrated their art but one of the earliest and best remembered was Jean Taylor, and it was through our club that Derek Bridges and John Tovey joined forces to demonstrate Flowers and Food at an Area day.

The club has been called upon many times since it’s formation to stage flowers, from decorating rooms used by the Queen when visiting Barrow to launch various ships, to Holker Hall and Levens Hall and Chelsea Flower Show in 1977, and many other occasions throughout the years.

If you would like to visit our club we meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 2.00pm in St. Paul’s Church Hall, Hawcoat Lane, Barrow-in-Furness, you would be made most welcome. 2015 saw the club celebrating it's Golden Anniversary with a packed year of activities and demonstrations culminating in a gala luncheon in November.
